New SALSA call for short term research projects on "Interfaces"

Until 17 March 2023, SALSA will be accepting short-term research grants to support collaborative projects to be carried out by junior (doctoral and postdoctoral) researchers in the area of “Make and Measure” based at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin (HU). The projects must foster collaboration between the departments of HU as well as with other universities and research institutions. The junior researchers will be associated fellows of SALSA.

The thematic focus of this call is on interfaces in a very broad sense. Topics may include, for example,
  • the study and advanced characterization of interfaces in biological and materials chemistry
  • the development of methods that deliver new information or provide improved spatial or temporal resolution from interfaces
  • novel reaction spaces involving interfaces, reaction compartments or chemical reactions under confinement
  • the preparation and modification of surfaces and interfaces for analytical applications
  • new theoretical or computational approaches for addressing the topics above.

Deadline for applications is March 17, 2023. For more details also click here.

Don't hesitate to contact for further information.

787. WE-Heraeus-Seminar on
"Accelerated Discovery of New Materials"
The development of new materials is critical for all industrialized societies, as it touches upon virtually all technology relevant application fields including energy, efficient use of resources and devices for information technologies. The program will include a series of lectures by leading researchers from experiment, theory, and computer science. Students and early career researchers are encouraged to participate with posters and flash presentations. To facilitate trans- and interdisciplinary exchange, we will hold open discussion sessions on a variety of topics.


The venue for this seminar is the Physikzentrum Hauptstr. 5, 53604 Bad Honnef, Germany. Lectures, accommodation and meals will all take place at the Physikzentrum.


For all participants of this seminar -  except invited speakers - it is required to apply for admittance. Please briefly outline your motivation to participate. Please note, for postdoctoral researchers, PhD students, and graduate students it is mandatory to present a poster and, thus, to submit an abstract.
Application deadline is 12 March 2023. The admittance will be confirmed (or declined) by the Foundation right after this deadline at the latest. You can register here.

The conference language will be English. The Wilhelm and Else Heraeus-Foundation bears the cost of full-board accommodation for all participants.
